EMMA is a database containing information on the emotional effects of hundreds of music excerpts from different genres. The effects of the music excerpts were rated with a tool that was specifically devised to capture the richness of musically evoked emotions, the Geneva Emotion Music Scale (GEMS).
Our goal is to create a database that is fun and user-friendly to navigate, all while plenty of detail to the interested user.
This presentation was about the Induction Rule Model (Scherer & Zentner, 2001), focussing on factors influencing emotional responses to music.
Specifically, the results of two studies were presented, delving into listener features, music structural features, and performance features in the context of music emotion induction.
